Viaduct Harbour temporarily closed to vehicles

The entrance to the Eastern Viaduct Harbour and public car parks on Te Wero Island and the Eastern Viaduct will be temporarily closed to all traffic, except emergency vehicles, from 7.30am to 5pm on: Tuesday, 26 October Wednesday, 27 October Thursday, 28 October Monday, 1 November Tuesday, 2 November and Wednesday, 3 November 2004.

The entrance and car parks will be closed to allow work on the Quay Street upgrade to progress.

Auckland City’s CBD project manager, Mark Kunath says, the new footpath paving on the southern side of the Viaduct Harbour entrance outside the Degree Bar has been laid and paving on the northern side is going well.

“We are now ready to lay the bluestone paving on top of the concrete road in the entrance to the Viaduct Harbour. This will be the final finish for the road surface. At the same time, work will begin at the intersection with Quay Street. This will include new drainage and extending the concrete slab further east, towards the Quay Street intersection,” he says.

All businesses and residents in the area have been informed of the road closure.

Pedestrian access to the Viaduct Harbour will be maintained at all times.

The road closures have also been timed so they will not affect any of the events taking place at the old Alinghi and Team New Zealand bases and forecourt areas during October and November 2004.

All work in the Viaduct Harbour area, except the new lighting, should be completed by the end of November in time for the busy Christmas period.

The $7 million upgrade of Quay Street is a critical part of Auckland City’s project to revitalise Auckland’s central business district (CBD) as one of the world’s most vibrant and dynamic business and cultural centres. The upgrade aims to transform Quay Street into an attractive, high quality people friendly street that reconnects Auckland’s central business district with the waterfront.

Work on the Quay Street upgrade began on 16 August 2004 and is on course for completion early next year.

Auckland City apologises for any inconvenience this temporary road closure may cause. For more information people are urged to call Auckland City on ph (09) 379 2020.
